The new parents have spread the thrilling new via a statement.

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.” the Clooney’s asserted.

It’s Going To Be An Adventure

An insider tells PEOPLE, “This is very good news. We’re very, very happy. George is going to be a great father of twins.”

Mr.Clooney spoke about his feelings when the news first broke in February that George, 56, and Amal, 39, would be parents for the first time. Mr.Clooney said during an interview with Laurent Weil on his French program Rencontres de Cinéma, “We are really happy and really excited. It’s going to be an adventure.”

“We’ve sort of embraced it all … with arms wide open,” the actor-director added.

The Clooneys tied the knot in September 2014 in Venice, Italy, in a glamorous ceremony that hosted close celebrity friends, including Geroge Clooney’s longtime friend and partner Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford, Emily Blunt and Bono.

Since the news broke, the couple has stayed silent about Amal’s potential pregnancy.

First Appearance As A Mother

Amal first made her first appearance as a mother to be in February when she attended the 42nd César Awards in Paris alongside her husband. Amal’s pregnancy news was deliberately confirmed as Amal was seen for the first time with her baby bump.

“It is a great honor for us to be here. It’s the first time we’re in Paris together so it’s a bit of a romantic weekend for us.” she told French reporters at the time.

Not only the Clooney were thrilled to hear about their new baby twins, but also their close friends could not hide their excitement when hearing the news.

“He is excited about the kids, but also has the normal amount of nerves that come with being parents.” an insider said.

Another close source said that Amal “strikes me as someone who’ll be a fantastic mother. Intelligent, loving, funny, smart, nurturing. She doesn’t seem someone who will let kids get away with being Hollywood children.”
